“Enough is Enough” is an annual event at MCC that addresses issues of rape and sexual assault on college and university campuses. In July 2015, Governor Cuomo signed legislation that requires all colleges and universities to adopt a set of procedures and guidelines regarding sexual relationships between students including standards for handling rape and sexual assault charges.
A key component of the law is an affirmative consent rule whereby both people in a relationship have to say yes to a sexual encounter. Further, victims of assault must be informed of their rights and resources, including going to police.
Many New York State campuses participate in “Enough Is Enough”. Over the years the program has expanded to include other forms of violence in the community in addition to sexual assault on campus. RRCAHT is participating this year with an informational and educational table and speakers on human trafficking.
At the RRCAHT table, visitors will have an opportunity to speak with professionals in the field of human trafficking, get contact information for victims and survivors, look at current books, including Girls Like Us by Rachel Lloyd and Walking Prey by Holly Austin Smith. The table will have survivor stories and videos about trafficking, as well as information about current legislation. The new RRCAHT brochure, which includes a list of 'Trafficking Red Flags' and a membership form, will be available at our table.
Visitors can learn about CARE packs for women still struggling on the streets or making the transition away from the streets. CARE packs contain essentials such as toothbrush and toothpaste, feminine hygiene products, granola bar and tuna kit, pajamas, and a blanket.
Posters on human trafficking by Professors Bruce Meader and Anne Ghory-Goodman from RIT will be exhibited at the event. Each of the 4 posters highlights a trafficking theme: Sex Trafficking, Labor Trafficking, Domestic Trafficking, and Sex Trafficking of Minors.
